    2. Fall Open Enrollment (October)
    3. At the time of Hire

Retirement Benefits

  • The Southern Lehigh School District is a contributing member of the Public Schools Employees Retirement Systems (PSERS), a governmental, cost-sharing, multiple-employer pension plan for public school employees in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

    All employees must contribute to PSERS starting their first day of employment; contributions are automatically deducted via payroll. However, to become eligible for membership in PSERS, an employee must work 500 hours or 80 days (whichever is greater) during a given school/ fiscal year. Employees who do not meet this threshold may be eligible to receive a refund from PSERS for any contributions made via payroll deduction. You can explore PSERS contribution rates by membership class more via the pull-down menu below. 

    The Southern Lehigh SD offers eligible employees the opportunity to save additional money for retirement through various 403(b) and 457(b) plans. You can learn more about these plan options via the pull-down menu below.
